HELD FOR MORE THAN HALF a century, our famed Atlanta Steeplechase in Kingston, Georgia, ran its last spring race in 2017. But thankfully, that race was not its last, just a hurdle that had to be jumped.
In 2019, the renamed Georgia Steeplechase began with renewed vigor to bring North Georgia’s famed racing event back to Northwest Georgia and continue this popular tradition in horse racing. More than a race, the event is touted as “the best lawn party in Georgia.” Pack a picnic (and a fabulous hat!) and join the fun on October 24; festivities will adhere to CDC- and state-recommended safety protocols and social distance guidelines as necessary.
